A gunman is on the loose after shots are fired into a 24 hour mexican restaurant early Monday morning. Officer James Holmes says two groups got into an argument at Julioberto’s Restaurant at 32nd Street and Mc Dowell Road,  escalating to blows between a woman from each group.

Holmes says a man grabbed a gun from a car breaking the fight between the women, then hopped into a grey sedan which fired into the restaurant. Holmes says a 26 year old woman was seriously shot in the hand.

The shooting victim underwent surgery but will be O.K.  Holmes says it’s still not clear what led to the fight between the two groups. But possibilities include a dispute over a bathroom key and what he calls “biased slurs ” the groups made to each other.
